Outages are on the rise, and more Californians have to endure power cuts. Without electric grid upgrades, severe heat waves in Los Angeles County could cause sweeping blackouts by 2050, according to a study by UCLA and Arizona State University.1
While government agencies and electric companies work on updating the grid, going solar with a North Hollywood solar company like Sunrun is a cost-effective way to prepare for the future. Home solar panel prices have fallen by more than 70% over the last 10 years.2
In addition, North Hollywood offers plenty of sunlight year-round, ranging from almost 10 daylight hours during winter to more than 14 daylight hours during summer.3 A tremendous amount of clean energy ready to be harnessed to protect your home from outages, reduce your carbon emissions and control your electric bills. The average residential electricity rate in California is almost 30% higher compared to other states.4
As the nation’s largest residential solar, storage and energy services company,5 Sunrun offers several solar plans to help you create and store your own solar power at home in the most affordable way possible.
Also, California’s net energy metering program lets residential solar consumers earn bill credits for the electricity they add to the grid.6 Meaning, you’ll have more control over your home energy.
Since 2007, hundreds of thousands of families have chosen Sunrun to create and store their own solar power to take control of their electric bills, get outage protection and reduce their carbon emissions. To date, Sunrun customers’ systems have produced billions of kilowatt-hours of clean power.7See how our customers have benefited from solar.
